Our Correspondent
Silchar, April 24: District committee of Chhatra Yuva Sangram Samiti (CYSS), through a memorandum addressed to the Deputy Commissioner of Cachar on Monday has urged upon him to appoint a judicial officer to investigate the case of CYSS convener Monjur Elahi Tapadar alias Babar Tapadar who was arrested by Cachar police under various sections of IPC like rioting, damaging of public properties and pelting of stones on police personnel during the communal tension that prevailed over Kalibari Char recently. CYSS alleged that Monjur has been framed and all of these cases are totally false and baseless.
It has been mentioned in the memorandum that Monjur has been most vocal in protesting against corruption, communal tension and communalism. He has always been concerned at the well being of others and is no way related to any communal or illegal activities. But on April 14, one Aziz Mazumdar through a telephonic call threatened him to stop his activities. Monjur immediately lodged an FIR against the number with Rangirkhari police. After lodging of the FIR the CYSS members came to know that the caller was the nephew of a BJP MLA.
On the following day, Monjur was called by the police to discuss the issue. Instead of initiating any discussion, the police detained him for 5 long hours without any valid or lawful reason. Later, he was released on the same day only to be arrested on the following day. Monjur was framed, produced before the court which sent him to jail. It has been clearly stated in the memorandum that the arrest was made on the direction the MLA. Aziz Mazumdar has openly threatened that he would kill Monjur once he gets out from jail. Monjur Elahi Tapadar is a resident of Saidpur village at Sonai in Cachar.
His residence is around 20 km away from the spot of the incidents and so he is in no way related to these incidents. CYSS has urged upon Cachar DC to direct Rangirkhari police to register the case given by Monjur and initiate a thorough and unbiased investigation into the matter. The memorandum has been signed by Jashim Ahmed Laskar, secretary of CYSS and others.
